Discharge Unit

What we offer

At the Great Western Hospital, when you are ready to leave hospital, we provide the comfort and care of a Discharge Unit while you are waiting to be collected by relatives, friends or hospital transport and/or medications from the pharmacy.

The Discharge Lounge has been developed to provide quality care for you and your relatives on the day of discharge.  There is a Nurse and a Nursing Auxiliary on duty each day, who are on hand to provide support to you and help with any difficulties you might have.  They can also help explain medications to you, a family member or your carer if needed.

The Unit is there to provide a pleasant, relaxed environment where you can wait in comfort. Some of the facilities they have on offer include: 

  • Armchairs
  • Radio
  • Newspapers/magazines
  • Refreshments and packed lunches for patients in the Unit over lunch time.
